Kenya central bank working with police in graft investigation

NAIROBI, May 29 (Reuters) - Kenya’s central bank said on Tuesday it was working with police in an investigation into the theft of nearly $100 million of public funds at a government agency.

Patrick Njoroge told a news conference that the scandal at the government’s National Youth Service had led to erosion of public trust in government institutions. On Monday, authorities charged 54 people, mainly civil servants, as part of the investigation.
